The online magazine “Low Res” is now available. The idea of this magazine was to bring discmags into the internet. It features mostly articles from the Atari ST point of view… so why do I mention it here? Well, the current issue – number 2 – contains at least two articles which are CPC related. The first one was a cooperation with the german CPC forum and tries to deal with the prejudices which other users with other systems have about the CPC. The second is a meeting report of the XzentriX 2009 which is a retro meeting in Seeshaupt / Germany. It normally gets visited by a lot of (german) CPC users, too.

Here are the contents of issue 2:

  • Editorial
  • News
  • The future of ST web collections: Atarimania
